Why I Teach
It’s important to me to create a supportive teaching environment that encourages students to actively participate in class. Those who are motivated to take extra efforts to expand our class work are rewarded for their positive actions. Using business case studies and other examples, students see firsthand how to take what they learn and apply it effectively to new material.
For me, teaching is its own reward. As I observe students absorbing new concepts and incorporating them into their work, I feel a great sense of accomplishment.
